The Los Angeles Sparks had to work overtime on Friday to beat Connecticut and secure its 20th win in its first 21 games, tying the WNBA record for the best start to a season. Cheap Toronto Raptors Jerseys .Now Los Angeles will look to continue its winning ways when travels to Atlanta for a 3 p.m. EDT tipoff against the Dream at Philips Arena.The Sparks, at 20-1 on the season, have won nine straight games and all nine of their contests on the road this season.The victory over Connecticut allowed Los Angeles to reach the mark of best record through 21 games as set by the Houston Comets in 1998. Houston ended up 27-3 in the regular season in 1998 -- a record that still stands -- on the way to the second of its four consecutive WNBA championships.It took a Herculean performance from Jantel Lavender -- who scored a career-high 25 points and added a season-best 10 rebounds, and Kristi Tolliver (who scored eight of her 24 points in overtime) for the Sparks to tie the record. Los Angeles was down by 16 points in the third quarter before roaring back.No one wants to be down by that much (in the third quarter), said Sparks forward Nneka Ogwumike, who leads LA in scoring and is fourth in the league at 19.2 points a game. We didnt come out with the focus that we wanted to and hopefully thats the first and the last time that happens. Today was eye-opening for us.The Dream (10-10) have lost two straight games, both on the road, including a 78-72 setback on Friday at Indiana. Atlanta dropped the first meeting of the season at Los Angeles by nine points, so it knows it can play with the leagues top team.Dream forward Angel McCoughtry is the reigning Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the period ending July 10, having honor for the second time this season and the 15th time in her eight-year career.McCoughtry is sixth in the league in scoring at 19 points per game but was held to just nine points by the Sparks in the first game this season between the two teams.

"I have been having this neck ache thats been affecting my golf recently," Oyama said. .Y. -- Marcell Dareus and the Buffalo Bills defence made life miserable for Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco. RIO DE JANEIRO -- NBA stars came out to cheer for her. The crowd at the Copacabana beach volleyball venue sang Happy Birthday.And Kerri Walsh Jennings earned a spot in the Olympic semifinals.All in all, a pretty good first 40 minutes as a 38-year-old.Its a unique experience, and I loved it, the three-time gold medalist said after she and April Ross beat Australia 21-14, 21-16 to move two wins from her fourth Olympic title.The Americans will play Brazils Agatha and Barbara -- the defending world champions -- on Tuesday, with the winner advancing to the gold-medal match. The other womens semifinal match will feature Germany and the top-seeded Brazilian team of Larissa and Talita.Both sessions were in front of a packed arena, and NBA stars Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, DeAndre Jordan and Jimmy Butler showed up for the midnight match that featured their fellow Americans.The U.S. basketball players tried to get a wave going and started a U-S-A! chant when they were shown on the venue video board. They also squabbled with fans behind them -- its hard to see past a 6-foot-11 NBA forward -- but engaged in some playful banter with Australia fans across the sand.Ross said she has enjoyed the way athletes from different sports meet and root for one another.Thats one of the biggest things I love about the Olympics, she said.The Americans victory was the second runaway of the night session; Agatha and Barbara advanced with a 23-21, 21-16 victory over Russia.But the other Brazilian team needed three sets and 70 minutes -- the longest match of the Olympics so far -- to get past Switzerland in the afternoon.The 21-23, 27-25, 15-13 victory included 27 ties and 11 lead changes. There were 15 ties and five lead changes alone in the epic 29-minute second set, keeping the fans in the 12,000-seat beachside arena on their feet long after the sun set over the Rio de Janeiro mountains.The crowd was the third player, Larissa said. Only the athletes who have played at an Olympic Games know how it is like. What matters today is that we stayed together, between us and the crowd with us, cheering at every poiint and still cheering now. Lucas Nogueira Jersey. witzerlands Joana Heidrich sat on the bench long afterward, her head covered with a towel while her body shook as she sobbed. Talking to reporters with reddened eyes, she said: Now its really bad, but I think in a few hours Ill be really happy with our results and our performances.Teammate Nadine Zumkehr said it would take her a while to appreciate the experience. But shes going to try.It was the best game I ever had the chance to play, she said. The audience was crazy. I really want to keep that deep in my heart for the rest of my life, because its unforgettable.Larissa and Talita are each three-time Olympians, but they teamed up at the Rio Games for the first time. Larissa won bronze in London -- losing to Ross and Jennifer Kessy in the semifinals -- while Talita has yet to reach an Olympic podium.They kept their chances alive after losing the first set and falling behind 19-17 in the second, putting the Swiss two points from a spot in the semifinals.Too bad they showed their very best at the right moments, Zumkehr said. They deserved to win, but we gave them a really, really hard win.Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst beat Canada 21-14, 21-14 earlier in their quest for Germanys first Olympic medal in womens beach volleyball. The German men won gold in London.The boys did it last time. I was in the stadium, said Ludwig, who is at the Olympics for the third time, finishing ninth and fifth with Sara Niedrig. If they can do it, I want to work hard for that as well.Canada sent the maximum of four beach volleyball teams to Rio -- one of just four countries to hit the quota. But Heather Bansley and Sarah Pavan were their last hope for a medal.A lot of athletes strive to represent their country in the Olympic Games. We got that opportunity, Pavan said. The program doesnt have the history that the American and Brazilian programs have. The fact that we had four teams here speaks loudly, and were only going to get better.

The Los Angeles Kings are mired in their longest losing streak of the season and struggling to score goals. DeMarcus Cousins Jersey . The identity of their next opponent may make things look a whole lot brighter.The Kings will try to continue their mastery of the Edmonton Oilers when the Pacific Division rivals face off Thursday night in Los Angeles in the first of five meetings this season.Last season, the Kings outscored the Oilers 20-12 while completing the first season series sweep of at least five games in franchise history. Additionally, Los Angeles has won nine in a row at Staples Center over Edmonton by a 36-13 margin, and the Kings are 16-1-2 in the past 19 matchups overall.All that is great for a Kings team that needs some positive news. After kicking off a five-game road trip with a 7-0 rout of the Toronto Maple Leafs on Nov. 8, Los Angeles (7-9-1) has managed a total of five goals while losing four in a row, including a 4-1 setback to the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday.Though the Kings have played just 17 games, reigning Norris Trophy winner Drew Doughty said the team must have a different mindset.We need to play more desperate, he told the Los Angeles Times. When youre losing games, its not fun. ... Its not fun coming to the rink sometimes. Weve got to be more desperate and treat every single game as if its a playoff game or a division game and thats how were going to get back on track.Doughty had only three assists in five games versus the Oilers last season. Los Angeles was paced by Tyler Toffoli (three goals, five assists in five games) and Jeff Carter (four goals, three assists in four games).Carter is the Kings leader with five goals and 11 points so far in 2016-17.Los Angeles continues to deal with injuries to key players including goaltender Jonathan Quick (lower body), Marian Gaborik (foot) and center Anze Kopitar (upper body). Quick is out until January, but Gaborik could be back next week and Kopitar remains day-to-day after being injured Friday against the Ottawa Senators.It definitely helps out to be out there on the ice, and just, you know, be on the ice and have the feel and all of that, Kopitar told on Wednesday. Again, day-to-day, skate again (Thursday), see what happens and well go from there.Despite their struggles, the Kings are fourth in the Pacific, four points behind the Oilers, who are tied with the Anaheim Ducks for first thanks in part to a 5-3-1 road record.These are tough games to play in Anaheim, L.A., San Jose, Dallas, they always have been, Oilers coach Todd McLellan told the Edmonton Sun prior to a three-game road trip that started Tuesday with a 4-1 loss to the Ducks and concludes Saturday against the Stars.McLellan went on to say Edmonton has showed some improvement, but now it is time to ratchet up the results.We want to take that a step further and come up with some wins, he told the Sun. However the game is played, I think were equipped to play it, but individuals have to pick up their play.Not dealing with an early deficit would help, too. The Oilers (9-7-1) have dropped a season-high four straight, but more alarming is they have surrendered the opening goal in each of their last six. Edmonton has fallen behind in the first 1:57 in four of those contests and trailed within the opening 28 seconds in two.The Oilers are 4-6-1 when opponents score first.It becomes a mental thing, but theres two different types of play ... one where (youre) not prepared mentally at the start of games, then when the other team scores, you think and reflect on that and you lose the next five minutes, too, McLellan told the Edmonton Journal.Cam Talbot was 0-4-0 with a 3.56 goals-against average and a .893 save percentage against the Kings last season, and he has surrendered 24 goals in his past seven games overall, posting a 1-5-1 record. Jonas Gustavsson could make his first appearance since Nov. 6, when he recorded 22 saves in 2-1 road win over the Detroit Red Wings.In his only game in Los Angeles while with Detroit, Gustavsson allowed an early goal as the Red Wings fell 1-0 on Feb. 24, 2015.Oilers left winger Milan Lucic is scheduled to meet his former club for the first time. While with the Kings last season, Lucic had a goal, four assists and a team-high 10 penalty minutes vs. Edmonton.He signed a seven-year, $42 million deal with the Oilers in July, and he has five goals and four assists in 17 games. China Pelicans Jerseys . The veteran safety was a starter for the Bengals from 2008-2012. He totaled 41 tackles and three interceptions while starting all but four of the 13 games he played last season. Cheap Nike Pelicans Jerseys . -- Tony Stewart is 20 pounds lighter and has a titanium rod in his surgically repaired right leg. .7 million, one-year contract, a raise of $2.2 million. Wieters had asked for $8.75 million and the Orioles had offered $6. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- P.K. Subban certainly knows how to make an entrance, especially with a team more than happy to help manage his arrival in Music City.The Nashville Predators took their new All-Star defenseman on a whirlwind trip around town that featured Subban jumping onstage at a renowned honky-tonk to belt out Johnny Cashs Folsom Prison Blues. Then the Predators introduced Subban to reporters and a few fans Monday in their first chance to show off the man they picked up last month in a big trade with Montreal.Subban said the past few weeks since last months trade have been filled with mixed emotions.Theres no question that Im head-over-heels excited about this opportunity to play here in Nashville, Subban said. Im excited about our team. Im excited about our city and Im most importantly excited about the opportunity to win a Stanley Cup. Thats what this is all about. Coming here is not a popularity contest. Coming here is about helping this team to win and win a championship. Thats what Im here to do.The Predators and Canadiens stunned the NHL on June 29 with Montreal swapping Subban for Nashvilles captain and fellow All-Star defenseman, Shea Weber. Nashville has been lauded for getting the better end of the deal with Subban having just turned 27 in May while Weber turns 31 in August. Montreal has been criticized for trading away the 2013 Norris Trophy winner and a fan favorite who pledged $10 million to a childrens hospital last year.Subban said he had an amazing relationship with the Montreal fans but promised they will learn to love Weber as both a great hockey player and person.Obviously leaving Montreal is emotional for me, Subban said. I have a lot of relationships there, a lot of great ties, and Ill be connected too that city forever. Cheap New Orleans Pelicans Jerseys. Now its time ... Christmas Day is over, its Boxing Day and its time to move on.Subban was vacationing in Europe when the trade occurred. He used this quick trip to Nashville to meet general manager David Poile and some of the teams employees. He has yet to sit down with coach Peter Laviolette and his assistants to find out what they want from him. Subban ate lunch Monday with new teammates Ryan Ellis and Mike Fisher and now has all his new teammates phone numbers.Nashvilles new defenseman lacks Webers size at 6 feet and 210 pounds. But Subban has more points (202) than the 6-4, 236-pound Weber (180) over the past four seasons. The Predators wanted to add Subbans offensive skills to Laviolettes scheme in which defensemen are encouraged to join the attack offensively to better compete in the Central Division, where they finished fourth.The Predators lost to San Jose in the second round of the playoffs in seven games.Hopefully, were either creating more offense and scoring more goals but for sure not spending as much time in our end, Poile said.Subban already has had fans asking for his autograph and coming up to talk to him. He was in Nashville for All-Star weekend last January, which gave him a chance to get to learn about his new home a bit.I remember leaving, saying, Wow! I didnt know people were so passionate about hockey here, Subban said. It is a hockey city. Im really excited to be playing here right now. Its different. Its definitely different from Montreal but different in a good way. I look to embrace everything about this city and definitely embrace winning.

With the bowl, vert and street courses their canvas and the tricks their paint, these girls and women ripped from morning to sunset.Welcome to Exposure Skate 2016, the premier female skateboarding event in the world, held in Southern California each November since 2012. This years competition featured 171 amateurs and pros from all over the world, competing on three types of courses: vert, bowl and street. Vert, short for vertical ramp, is similar in many ways to a snowboard halfpipe, and the bowl is just what it sounds like -- a giant bowl that skaters stay inside. Street involves tricks in public spaces like down stairs and on railings.At this years event, the parking lot was already jammed by 8 a.m. Girls and women go to compete -- but also hope to get a glimpse of pros like Lizzie Armanto, Brighton Zeuner and Lacey Baker. This is the competition that, if youre a girl, you have to be here. This is it. There is no bigger competition, said Hagan McCreath, 40, of Monster Skatepark in Sydney, Australia, who also served as an emcee at Exposure.Amelia Brodka couldnt have pictured this scene when she co-founded the nonprofit organization Exposure Skate, dedicated to empowering girls and women in skateboarding. The idea came after she directed the documentary Underexposed, which highlighted the lack of opportunities for female skateboarders. Exposure the event was born in 2012, with proceeds going toward helping survivors of domestic violence. It feels like a community, it feels like a family out here, Brodka said. These women want to see the sport grow and they want to support all the other girls.There were winners, like Zeuner, age 12, in pro bowl; Armanto, 23, in pro vert; and Alexis Sablone, 30, in pro street. But skateboarding veteran Dave Duncan, emceeing the event, reminded the crowd of something equally important: It doesnt matter if you win or lose. If youre having a good day, if youre having fun, thats what skateboardings all about.What does this event mean to the girls and women who compete each year? We talked to seven of them to find out.Quinne Daniels, 8, and Julie Daniels, 52; Manhattan Beach, CaliforniaQuinne wouldnt stop smiling, even as her mother, Julie, placed a bandage on her bloody knee from a recent skateboard fall. With a temporary, red star tattoo on her other thigh, rainbow socks, turquoise laces and a Girl is not a 4 letter word shirt, Quinne was ready to ride in the amateur 14-and-under bowl.She has been skating for a year and a half. Her mother suggested she try the sport since she had mastered her scooter. Soon, she attended her first skateboarding camp. I dropped in my first day, Quinne said, beaming. It felt pretty awesome.This was her first time competing at Exposure, though she attended the event last year with her mother. She saw other girls competing and she was just google-eyed, Julie said. We were going to come back again as spectators, but she was asked to compete. She had so much fun!Jordyn Barratt, 17; Encinitas, CaliforniaJordyn Barratt has racked up numerous skateboarding medals, including first place at the 2016 Girls Combi Classic in the 15-and-over amateurs division, and third at this years X Games in Austin, Texas, in womens skateboard park. But Exposure provides somethhing equally special for her: Everyone is empowering each other to land a trick, Barratt said. Raymond Felton Jersey. Its not like, Dang she landed it. Its like, Yeah! She landed it! Thats so rad!Winning is always a fun thing to do and being competitive is super fun, said Barratt, who took second in both the pro bowl and vert competitions, but hanging out with your friends at a skate park and pushing each other to do a trick, finally getting that trick and being so stoked for each other, knowing how hard it is -- no matter if youre an older guy or a young little girl -- were all here supporting each other.Stephanie Allen, 40; Oceanside, CaliforniaStephanie Allen double-checked with Exposure to make sure she was the oldest competitor. By a long shot, Allen said, proudly, as her cheetah elbow and knee pads and her lime-green board glimmered in the sun.Its been a journey, said Allen, who began skating last year. She had been sick for the past nine years, and extremely ill for the past two. Thats when she was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder, hypogammaglobulinemia.She was barred from surfing due to monthly blood plasma transfusions, which left her immune system unable to fight off the germs and bacteria in the ocean. I was like, Thats it. Im going to learn how to skate. I dont care that Im 39! Allen said.To me, this is kind of a rebirth. This is showing me that life can really turn around, said Allen, who said she feels healthier than ever. For me to just be here and celebrate being alive and healthy and being able to skate, Im amped. Skateboarding saved my soul.Sari Simpson, 16; Sydney, AustraliaSimpson followed Exposure veterans on Instagram over the past few years. She aspired to come to the United States and compete, practicing daily on a bowl at the end of the block of her Sydney home.Im used to competing against two girls at the most, maybe three, Simpson said. Its so good when you go to a skate park and the guys will be like, What are you doing here? Whats a girl doing here? Then you start skating and they see that girls can skate too.Simpson no longer feels like an outsider. Exposure allowed her to meet new friends and push her skills to a new level, as she took first in the amateur 15-and-over vert and third in the amateur 15-and-over bowl.To compete against this many girls, has been so much fun, Simpson said. Its been a dream seeing all these girls who love skateboarding like I do.Kendra Sebelius, 37; Vista, California and Aubrey Kelsay, 9; Encinitas, CaliforniaThough Sebelius and Kelsay are 28 years apart, the two friends share a love of skateboarding. They also happen to share the same birthday -- on the day of Exposure -- where they both competed in bowl.It was meant to be, said Sebelius, taking off her purple helmet, recalling how the two met at Alga Norte Community Park in nearby Carlsbad.Sebelius originally frequented skate parks to follow her crush, a skater boy. Then, she grew tired of watching. She wanted to drop in, despite her fear of heights. Skateboarding has taught me perspective, patience and persistence, Sebelius said. You have to keep going.Kelsay, who has watermelon grip tape spray-painted on her skateboard, started skating a year ago after it was getting too cold to surf. She loved the challenge. It helps prove that girls can do the same things that boys can do, Kelsay said.The pair often practices together. We just fell in love with each other, Sebelius said. She makes me want to be better and to do it, because if she can do it, why am I letting it stop me?

England have named Elliot Daly in place of Jonathan Joseph at outside centre for Saturdays autumn opener against South Africa at Twickenham.Daly makes his full Test debut after winning five caps as a replacement, forming a new midfield partnership alongside Owen Farrell that offers long-range left and right-footed kicking options.It is the first time Joseph, a veteran of 25 internationals, has been dropped since establishing himself during the 2015 RBS 6 Nations and he drops to the bench to provide centre and wing cover.Tom Wood ends a year-long spell in the international wilderness that began after last autumns World Cup by filling the void at openside created by a succession of injuries.Weve picked a matchday 23 with a blend of experience and youth, head coach Eddie Jones said.Daly was among the Aviva Premierships most dangerous players last season with his acceleration and eye for an outside break breaching defences to Wasps benefit.While Joseph relies on elusive footwork and a burst of speed to beat defenders, Dalys skill lies in gliding through gaps and he also provides a long-range boot out of hand and from the kicking tee.Wood has been picked at seven ahead of Nathan Hughes with Jones opting for his work-rate, line-out expertise and experience over the explosive potential of the Wasps back row.Hughes is one of three uncapped players featuring on the bench with Harlequins tighthead prop Kyle Sinckler and Worcester centre Ben Teo also set to make debuts when South Africa open the Old Mutual Wealth Series on Saturday.Wing Jonny May also makes his first appearance since the World Cup following a year-long battle with a variety of injuries, lining up on the left with Marland Yarde patrolling the opposite flank.In total there are six changes to the starting XV that toppled Australia 44-40 in Sydney in June, a wiin that sealed a 3-0 whitewash of the Wallabies.

Its a very special stadium and we hope the crowd really gets behind us on Saturday.We want to make Twickenham an intimidating place for opposition teams to play rugby and the fans can contribute to that.We congratulate Courtney Lawes on his 50-cap milestone - an excellent achievement.Im also pleased to see a number of returning players get their chance on Saturday, most notably Jonny May after his long injury rehabilitation.England team to face South Africa:Brown; Yarde, Daly, Farrell, May; Ford, Youngs; Vunipola, Hartley (captain), Cole, Launchbury, Lawes, Robshaw, Wood, VunipolaReplacements:?George, Marler, Sinckler, Attwood, Hughes, Care, Teo, Joseph Jerseys NFL China Cheap Jerseys Online Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Jerseys NFL China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys 2020 ' ' ' 
(STATS) -- Everybody else across the FCS had a head start, but the Ivy League teams hope a lot of home-field advantage will tighten the gap this weekend. Wholesale Bucks Jerseys .Six of the eight Ivy teams will play at home when their 10-game season kicks off. All but one of the opponents have played two games.Harvard begins the season Friday night by hosting Rhode Island (0-2) before five other Ivy teams open at home Saturday -- Columbia against Saint Francis (0-2), Yale against No. 23 Colgate (0-1), Penn against Lehigh (0-2), Princeton against Lafayette (1-1) and Dartmouth against No. 22 New Hampshire (1-1).Also Saturday, Brown visits Bryant (1-1) and Cornell goes to Bucknell (1-1).The Ivies are coming off a season in which Dartmouth, Harvard and Penn forged a three-way share of first place -- the first time that happened in the Ancient Eight since 1982.All three teams lost a number of key seniors. Harvard, which has won three straight Ivy titles and four in the last five years, was installed as a slight preseason favorite over Penn, and Dartmouth was third in the league poll. But the next tier of teams -- Yale, Princeton and Brown -- have veteran teams capable of creating a wide-open league race.A lot more question marks, obviously, Harvard coach Tim Murphy said, and thats the obvious result of losing arguably the most successful senior class in Harvard football history. Its a bit unprecedented for us. Were used to being successful, were to setting the bar high.You just hope the kids develop and rise to the occasion, Penn coach Ray Priore said, are opportunistic when given the opportunity to make their imprint in the program.Harvard, an impressive 24-4-2 against teams currently in CAA Football, is replacing quarterback Scott Hosch, the 2015 Ivy offensive player of the year, with 6-foot-5 senior Joe Viviano. The new starter broke his foot in early September last year and missed the season, then broke the other foot late during winter workouts.Penns losses include linebacker Tyler Drake, the 2015 Ivy defensive player of the year. The Quakers fell 42-21 at Lehigh in Priores head coaching debut last season. Priore and Mountain Hawks coach Andy Coen worked together as Penn coordinators for six seasons (2000-05), winning three league titles.Dartmouth owns the most Ivy titles in league history with 19 -- last years was the Big Greens first since 1996. Their 7 p.m. ET kickoff Saturday against rival New Hampshire makes them the final Division I team to open the season.Yales nine-game winning streak in season openers is the leagues longest active streak, including a 29-28 triumph at Colgate last season.Princeton has defeated Lafayette eight straight times, including 40-7 last year.Brown and Bryant are separated by about 15 miles, although they never played each other until 2013. They have split the two prior meetings.Columbia and Cornell were mired in last place a year ago. Columbia lists 10 freshmen on its two-deep for the start of coach Al Bagnolis second season, while Cornell enters the campaign with more playing experience than any of coach David Archers previous three seasons. Oscar Robertson Jersey . Pierce was ejected in the third quarter of Indianas 103-86 win Monday. George Hill stole a bad pass and was going in for a layup, and Pierce hustled back and appeared to be trying to wrap him up. Matthew Dellavedova Jersey . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record. . The veteran safety was a starter for the Bengals from 2008-2012. He totaled 41 tackles and three interceptions while starting all but four of the 13 games he played last season. Chelsea came from behind to secure a 3-1 victory over Manchester City at the Eithad in Saturdays early kick-off.A well-contested first half saw few chances for either side, but it was City who broke the deadlock on the stroke of halftime. Gary Cahill inadvertently sent the ball into his own net following Jesus Navas drilled cross, an unfortunate blemish in an otherwise impressive performance from the Chelsea defender.The tempo was raised in the second half, with City missing two opportunities to widen the gap early on. Sergio Agueros effort was hacked off the line by Cahill moments before Kevin De Bruyne missed a sitter from point-blank range.The hosts were made to pay as Diego Costa raced through on goal to beat Claudio Bravo shortly aftter. Glenn Robinson Jersey. From there, Chelsea outshone the Citizens, frequently causing problems on the break. Willian put the visitors ahead with Costa heavily involved in the build-up play, and City never really fought back from then on. Eden Hazard made sure of the three points as he finished another counter-attack off.The game ended on a bitter note as Aguero was sent off for a terrible high challenge on Luiz, which sparked a mass kickoff. Fernandinho was also expelled for pushing Cesc Fabregas in the aftermath.An excellent performance from Chelsea earns them their eighth straight win. For City, lots to think about.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Robert Covington Jersey . -- Charleston Southern was without 14 players, including 10 starters, at No. 3 Florida State on Saturday because of one-game suspensions for an NCAA violation.Despite the depleted roster, coach Jamey Chadwell said after his teams 52-8 loss that he didnt want it to be a pity party. Dont feel sorry for us.The players were suspended for violating NCAA rules by using financial aid meant for books to purchase other items.The suspensions among the starters included four senior running backs, four offensive linemen and both safeties. Senior Ben Robinson, a Tallahassee native, was one of the suspended running backs and watched the game from the stands with his family.Charleston Southern said Friday in a statement that a total of 32 players would serve one-game suspensions. The school said 16 players already have served suspensions over the first two games of the season and two more would serve a suspension later.Chadwell said they found out Thursday afternoon that more players needed to serve suspensions. They had to make the decision on whether it was going to be this game or when they started the Big South portion of their schedule in two weeks against Monmouth.Chadwell did say after the game that in their discussions with the NCAA that there shouldnt be any additional surprises as far as more players needing to sit a game.Charleston Southern, the seventh-ranked team in FCS, was not likely to challenge Florida State even with all its players. The Buccaneers (1-2) feel behind 28-0 nothing in the first quarter but averted a shutout when Robert Mitchell threw a 57-yard touchdown to Kameron Brown late in the second quarter.I am proud of the circumstances of the way our guys competed, Chadwell said. We focused on who was there. Those guys got an opportunity against a top team and did some good things. I was proud of the way they competed.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Anthony Davis has retired from the NFL for the second time in 15 months, the team announced late Monday afternoon.Davis addressed his retirement in a tweet, writing:Davis returned to the 49ers just before the start of training camp after taking the 2015 season off to, as he said, allow my brain and body a chance to heal. Upon his return, Davis was unable to win back the starting right tackle job from Trent Brown and moved inside to right guard before the teams second preseason game against Denver.Heading into the regular season, Davis had seemingly won the starting right guard job, but coach Chip Kelly decided to go with Andrew Tiller at that spot before the season opener against the Los Angeles Rams. Davis missed a practice the Saturday before the opener amid reports he was again considering retirement, but Kelly and Davis called it a miscommunication that they went on to resolve.Davis ended up serving as the teams primary backup tackle and played three snaps late in the 28-0 win against the Rams. Then, just three days before the Niners Week 2 game against Carolina, Davis was diagnosed with a concussion that prevented him from traveling and playing in that game.Kelly said last week he didnt talk to Davis after he suffered the concussion because the team traveled to Carolina on Friday.I havent seen AAD since Thursday, so well see where he is with it and whats going on, Kelly said then. Maurice Cheeks Jersey. And obviously, hell go into the league concussion protocol and well go through all the process there. Theres a system in place to make sure that hes not going to be put in harms way, so well see how that goes.Davis remained in that concussion protocol through last week and was again a pregame inactive for Sundays game in Seattle.The 49ers originally selected Davis with the 11th overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft. He quickly claimed the starting right tackle job and went on to appear in 72 games with 71 starts.Davis previously retired in June 2015 after an injury-plagued 2014 season in which he dealt with shoulder, knee, ankle and hamstring injuries in addition to a concussion that limited him to seven games.When Davis returned to the Niners in July, he earned positive marks from coaches and teammates for coming back more than 30 pounds lighter than hed been in the 2014 season. He said at the time that he didnt regret walking away for the 2015 season.I didnt miss it right away, Davis said in July. I had a lot of work to do on my mind and body, so I knew it wasnt ready to come back and play, so missing it wouldnt have done me any good.

LANDOVER, Md. Los Angeles Lakers Jerseys Online . -- In their first real chance to play together this preseason, Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins offensive starters showed plenty of rust and then progress in a 21-16 victory against the Buffalo Bills on Friday night.With the Bills (1-2) resting almost their entire starting defense, Cousins overcame a rough start to finish 12 of 23 for 188 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. Despite coming mostly against Buffalos second- and third-stringers, it was an important recovery for Cousins, who had thrown only five passes in the preseason and was rested last week.Were going to have slow moments or slow quarters at times, and the key is going to be to find a way to circle the wagons and regroup, said Cousins, who started 3 of 9. The body of work overall was pretty productive, but there were moments where it wasnt as good as it needs to be, and we know that.Undrafted rookie running back Robert Kelley was the brightest spot for Washington (2-1), especially given the previous injuries to Matt Jones and Chris Thompson, and that seventh-round pick Keith Marshall sprained his left elbow on his only carry of the game.I definitely got some work in today, and I think it helped me out, said Kelley, who ran for 51 yards on 12 carries. Every time I get up there I try to put myself in a better situation to make the team, take advantage of the opportunity.Bills starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor played only two series, by coach Rex Ryans design, going 2 of 5 for 11 yards before being replaced by E.J. Manuel, who was 21 of 39 for 221 yards and an interception.Ryan also opted to rest running back LeSean McCoy and several key defenders, including defensive tackle Kyle Williams, linebacker Jerry Hughes and cornerbacks Ronald Darby and Stephon Gilmore.I feel pretty good about the guys that I sat, obviously, and I dont think we can afford to get them hurt, Ryan said. Its as simple as that, and I dont care about the criticism.Redskins coach Jay Gruden took a more conventional dress-rehearsal approach to the third preseason game for the Redskins (2-1) and got the kind of performances hed like to see from top players tight end Jordan Reed, receivers DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, left tackle Trent Williams, and cornerback Josh Norman.ROOKIE WATCHBills: RB Jonathan Williams ran for 42 yards on 11 carries, including a 37-yard touchdown before leaving with a rib injury. ...

Former rugby league international Jason Donnelly says cocaine is everywhere after grand finals.Cronulla fullback Ben Barbas career is once again at a crossroads, with the former Dally M Medallist released by the Sharks this week after testing positive to cocaine four days after the Sharks NRL grand final triumph over Melbourne.Donnelly, a member of St Georges back-to-back grand final squads in 1992-93, says, speaking from experience, cocaine tends to be rife around celebrations of the games biggest day.Cocaine is everywhere after grand finals, he told AAP.Im not casting judgement ... its just reality.Why do you think the NRL tests for recreational drugs?Donnellys claims might ruffle feathers but he insists little has changed in the professional era since his playing days of more than 20 years ago.He says some footballers are happy to run the risk of being tested while on a high - natural or otherwise - after completing a gruelling season in the ultimate fashion.Society is society and back when I was playing you knew it would get out of your system in 48 hours, he said.Thats what all the breaking your back for all year is: to have just maybe one night where youd party all night and let your hair down.A former New Zealand junior decathlon champion who oncee trained under the legendary Daley Thompson in Britain, Donnelly is adamant he never engaged in recreational drugs - but he saw it first hand.

But I know teammates who were never tested.Ben Barbas 12-match suspension is what he deserves but I think it (party drug use) is rife.Cronulla stars made no secret on social media of the fact their premiership party lasted for days, posting numerous celebratory images but Sharks chairman Lyle Gorman said hed been assured by the NRL that no other players tested positive to illicit drugs.

MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho rose from his chair and was about to leave the post-match news conference when he turned to his audience, threw his arms up and said: Finally, Ive lost to Arsenal.It was a tongue-in-cheek remark from Mourinho but it summed up his feelings perfectly. United conceded an 89th-minute goal by Olivier Giroud to draw 1-1 with Arsenal in the English Premier League on Saturday, leaving Mourinhos side with an increasingly familiar deflated feeling at Old Trafford this season.United has dominated its last three home games in the league -- against Stoke, Burnley and now Arsenal -- and come away with draws from all of them.We all know internally, Mourinho said, that in this moment we are the unlucky team in the Premier League.Girouds superb header, from fellow substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlains right cross, was Arsenals only attempt on target in a match that United controlled at Old Trafford. United did the same against Burnley last time it played at Old Trafford, having 37 attempts on goal but drawing 0-0.Mourinho is cutting a frustrated figure at United, which remains a work in progress in his first season in charge. But he now hasnt lost in 12 Premier League meetings with Arsenal across two spells with Chelsea and one game with United, and stretched his unbeaten run in competitive meetings with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger -- his bitter coaching rival -- to 14 matches.It was a flat and all-too-familiar performance at Old Trafford by Arsenal, who hasnt beaten United away in the league since September 2006 and fell behind to Juan Matas 68th-minute goal. The Spain playmaker met a right-wing cut-back by Ander Herrera with a low, first-time shot into the ccorner for his fourth goal of the season. Paul George Jersey. Mourinho was heading for his most important victory since arriving at United, only for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to sprint past Marcus Rashford, reach the byline and cross for his fellow substitute Giroud to head home at the far post.We had not our usual style going forward. We were not sharp or fluent enough, said Wenger, who suggested that Arsenal might have a mental block when it plays at Old Trafford.Giroud is starting to make a serious claim for a starting place now he is fully fit following a delayed start to the season after the European Championship. The France striker, who has lost his place to Alexis Sanchez as Arsenals lone striker, scored two goals off the bench in the last away game at Sunderland.He is a bit frustrated, Wenger said. That is normal. He is ready to go again.This fixture has provided plenty of drama down the years but there was little to get the crowd excited about here, with the teams decision to field two defensive midfielders stifling much of the attacking play.United had the better of the game, but only created half chances until Matas goal.His future at United looked bleak after Mourinho was hired by United, with the Portuguese coach having sold Mata to United in January 2014 when both were at Chelsea. Mourinho then left the Spaniard distinctly unimpressed by substituting him in the Community Shield in August, soon after bringing him on as a substitute.But Mata appears to be a central figure in Mourinhos plans at United, and was given a standing ovation when he was substituted in the 85th minute.
